Down An Alley

The image almost gives the impression of an alley in an exotic location, that is if it was in the middle of a shopping/restaurant district in the middle of the suburbs but hey, I create visuals!  To be honest, the alley is between the Apple Store and a Uncle Julio’s Mexican Cafe which is why you see the rich colors on the right and the sleek modern glass in the left.  The building is the distance is a tire shop.  I was walking by and saw this guy on his phone pacing the alley and he spun to walk back towards the tire shop and I fired the shot. I still like how it looks more Tangiers than suburban America.

  1. Thanks everyone. It was total luck I caught this. I shot this in manual so I had to get the meter right and everything else but it worked out.

    Great contrast between the different walls, and the lights and man add to the composition; great shot!

    Very nice. Interest colors which are reflected in the mirrored building on the left with the zig-zag lights and it all draws your eye to the man at the end of the alley. Nice composition.
